Mission One

Hello all!

For these last two weekends, we went over to the Bernard Field Station which is owned by the Claremont Colleges to test the Iver2 in the lake. Jerry and Yukun joined us from the LAIR which is lucky because we weren’t entirely sure what we were doing. 🙂 They showed us the ropes and got us used to the robot. We drove it around in manual mode and tested out its turning radius. We noticed it made much tighter right turns than left.

We also successfully ran a simple mission. The map was downloaded from Google Earth with some adjustments and by using Vector Maps, the mission was a piece of cake. We plopped a few points down, kept an eye on the turns, and gave it a parking point. Our first mission was a complete success!

We went home bolstered  by our accomplishments and began making plans for mission two: diving.
